Getting started with HTML5, web designers and developers invariably find themselves diving into HTML5Boilerplate.com, HTML5Please.com, and CSS3Please.com. These wildly successful websites all have something in common: the fingerprints of Paul Irish.
Paul is a developer advocate for Google, and in looking at his work credits, you'll see even more projects like Modernizer, contributions to jQuery, and his many video tutorials. Taken together, they all indicate one drive in Paul's life: to empower designers and developers to make the web better.
Nothing makes this clearer than MoveTheWebForward.org, which seeks to answer the question "How can I make the web better?" It's full of ways to contribute, from the small, quick, and easy to the grand and time-consuming. If you want to join Paul and his mission of making the web more awesome, all you have to do is something, anything, and you too can help move the web forward.
With the proliferation of smartphones and tablets, optimizing content for speed across mobile devices has never been more important. In this session, Paul and I will show you how to optimize and deploy web content for speed, while exploring best practices and tips for performance-tweaking your CSS for a better mobile experience.
